Travelling and Reading

When do you read?  What do you read?

I tend to read most nights for a minimum of 15 minutes before I go to bed.  And sometimes I will read for hours.  I will read anything, from Mills and Boon to Karen Slaughter (my current favourite author) to books on Needlework to Biographies.  I have very eclectic tastes in reading.

And over the last 9 or so years, I have developed a strong preference for taking the train into the city.  In Melbourne you can get anywhere, just by getting off at the right station.  Going to the Paper craft fair several weeks ago, that station was Melbourne central.  And during the 45-60 minute train ride, I will read.

Packed in my handy, heavy duty canvas bag I always carry my iPad, with several Kindle books loaded – business books, education books, novels – along with (usually) the latest issues of Artful Blogging and/or Where Women Create.  At the moment, I am a tad behind in my reading, so it is not the current issue, but a recent issue.


I enjoy reading on the train.  It is a great way to while a way the time.  But it is not easy to make notes.  And I find the magazines inspiring, often opening my eyes to other blogs, other websites, giving me the inspiration that I need to keep blogging, keep creating.

So what do you read?  Where do you read?
